“Fun and Educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is one of my favorite museums. The exhibits are interactive and all ages can learn. From walking into a giant mouth to listening to sounds inside the human body, this is fun, educational, and can really piece together the human body in ways that a book simply cannot. I recommend this for any family in the area. It doesn't take long to go through, so make it a part of your plans!

“Small and not overwhelming - just right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This museum is very hands on and very fascinating. It's not huge so you can spend about 2 hours here and see it all. The 4D movie about cells even held my 8 year old son's attention. Parking is on site! We went on a Sunday afternoon; hardly anyone there!

“Small and only worth it on free admission days”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Like many reviewers before me have mentioned, this is a small museum and only worth visiting on Thursday afternoons after 2pm, when the admission fee is waived. Although my young elementary aged child enjoyed the museum, I did find that too many exhibits consisted of long video or written explanations and not enough physically interactive exhibits. Maybe it’s because I’m the mom of a boy, but I found the Grossology exhibit going around the country much more interesting and fun.

“Great attraction for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This museum has a lot of interactive stuff that kept kids interested and excited. I went there with my wife, and we enjoyed the visit, but indeed it has been thought for kids. They show a very well done 4D movie. The entrance to the parking is on the back of the museum, and you pay for it where you buy the tickets for the museum.
